are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too much for those who are in need. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from ken

to educate americans about the merits that are in obama care and meanwhile republicans every district attorney are talking about the flaws of obama care, is it these two doouling scripts this we hear every day up to the midterm election? >> i think so. i think obama care is a mess. i voted to repeal it and sent down there to try to stop. it and it is implemented porly and it is not about a website but a plan that is taking away a choice. and cutting half a trillion from medicare and a host of things that are wrong with it. i find it hypocriticical that you have staffers and senators and congressman with special perks. they have in house concierge services that allow for assistance and unlike many people in the private sector who are affected and it is only just begun as brit said himself. >> 5 million people received cancellation letters. they are angry and chances are they will not vote democratic. a year from now millions more will sign up. and maybe millions more as the administration is hoping? . and maybe they will cancel each other out and do the republicans need to articulate a

mandela died at the age of 95. our cameras are awaiting the arrival of president obama inside the white house briefing room in the west wing. this is obviously the stuff of a special association, a special relationship, more than what nelson mandela enjoyed with a string of american presidents, not only, of course, had president obama before he was president met nelson mandela, michelle obama, the first lady and both daughters spent time with him in south africa at his home, of course, this towering moral authority, a man who had visitors from all over the world, especially in his later years when his health started to fail and they had to go to him. world reaction, of course, is just now starting as the news broke so late local time in south africa. the white house quickly reacting to this news, the confirmation from south africa, president zuma having announced it on live television. let's look in on the white house briefing room where we are expecting the president. chuck todd is there. chuck, we have had occasions where we thought the news was coming. sadly, there's no turning it aw

care reform republican style. >> when you look at obama care, what you see is a government-centered health care delivery system. that's not what the american people want. the american people want to pick their own type of insurance, their own doctor, their own hospital. that's what a patient-centered health care system looks like. >> will that be up for a vote in 2014, a plan like that? >> will that be up in 2014? >> we'll see. >> steve schmidt, the guy can't even take the question seriously. the republicans in the house would vote on anything involving health care from their side, an idea from their side. >> it's interesting, one of the founders of the democratic leadership council out with a book today that charts bill clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional win

voted to repeal obama care 46 times! but they have stopped doing that now. since the shutdown, no more repeal obama care votes. repealing obama care now would mean they would be taking insurance from hundreds of thousands of americans. when they come back in january, it will be hundreds of thousands more americans who not just don't have just the promise of health insurance, but who are actually experiencing health insurance coverage, many of them for the first time in their lives. voting to repeal obama care was an expression of pure ideological exuberance for the first two or three or four dozen times that they took that vote, but now that people are getting covered, it's not that kind of vote anymore, and so, they're not taking that vote anymore. and so, now, what are they going to do with their time? six whole days to fill for the month of december. there's an interesting question when they've got in a way a small amount of time left between now and the end of the year, but six days for them. what are they going to fill it up with? they are on track to be a truly historic congress,

time, americans -- the problem with trying to repeal obama care beforehand was it was theoretical. i knew for, you know, forever that millions of americans were going to lose their health care and there'd be millions more. but it was theory. now americans are feeling the real disaster that the health care law is where we've got millions of americans losing the health care, losing access to the doctors and treatments that are keeping you alive. and that's going to have a negative impact on democrats trying to run for senate. let's face it. anybody that voted for that bill. anybody that mouthed those same words, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, and there are plenty of senate democrats, house democrats that told that exact same untruth. let's put it that way. >> senator, assuming that the affordable care act does create some difficulties for democrats, particularly those seeking office, what should you -- what should republican party do to kind of advance its own cause between now and 2014 elections? >> well, i heard you earlier, it's -- it's difficult to repeal obama
